My favorite books this month were easy to choose...although I read a lot of great books, three stood out for me (and are also some new favorites of mine). Click the titles to go to the books' Goodreads pages.
1. UnSouled (Unwind #3) by Neal Shusterman. If you haven't read this series yet, you're missing out. It's outstanding! And, I'd like to note that UnSouled is the first book Nat has stopped to read in months. So that alone should tell you how good UnSouled is! Rating: 5 stars; Stalker Worthy
2. "You Have Lipstick on Your Teeth" and Other Things You'll Only Hear From Your Friends in the Powder Room edited by Leslie Marinelli. I loved this anthology, comprised of 39 essays from popular bloggers. It was funny, poignant, and made me realize that I'm not so weird in the way I think about parenthood sometimes. Look for my review soon. Rating: 5 stars
3. I Heart My Little A-Holes by Karen Alpert. Another parenting satire book...a new favorite of mine. I love Karen's blog, Baby Sideburns, and this book was just what I needed to break me out of a bad "mommy guilt" cycle. I laughed so hard I nearly cried, and loved every minute of this book! Rating: 5 stars
